Voodoo woman

Goodevening everyone!!!  I was finally able to create something a bit darker today... lol.... I've been thinking about the challenge over at Haunted design house ever since I saw the fabulous creation that Marc did... and I have even created this blog after seeing that post.  So I really really really wanted to play... and was looking for inspiration.  And then it suddenly came!

I was also looking over at the Smeared and Smudged forum.  This is my 1st time actually participating in that forum!!! But they had an awesome sketch.  So here I go.  Hope you like my little creation.

I used the great Voodoo Woman from Delicious Doodles.  She really makes awesome darker images.  And I used a great sentiment from Graphicat.  So sorry that this site is closed :(  I really love those sentiments.  Glad that I found them just before they closed and I was able to get some of them.
Don't forget to press the read more to see the rest of the blog post...

So for this card I used some paper from Carta Bella - All Hallow's Eve.  I had purchased some pins to use on a voodoo card... and thought this was the great opportunity to use them!  So I did like Ike keeps doing and colored a few image and superposed some of the parts like the hand and the doll and then stuck the pins in!  The blood splatters are from Paint splatter dies from Quickutz.  I so wanted to make that border like in the sketch...and couldn't  figure what to use... and then I saw those!  So I paired 3 of them to make the border.  I used my Nesting frame 1 as well to cut the image and the paper underneath.

Here's a closer look at the image colored with my copics.  I added some distress ink black soot to the sentiment.
hmmm some men might be uncomfortable looking at that picture... sorry... but Teri did put the needle there... I just put a bigger one lol.  Just loooove that sentiment.  I think it's really fitting with this.  And no... I wasn't  thinking of anyone in particular when I created this lol

Here's the side view where you really see the dimension.
Here's the sketch that I followed:

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Smeared and smudged - Sketch
  2. Haunted design house - Nailed it (lucky pins counted as well!)
  3. Punk you girl - Dark humour - I think this fit lol
Hope you have liked my little creation!!!  I had sooooo much fun doing this.  This blog obviously will not have as many posts as my regular one... well at least not until closer to Halloween... but I will pop by occasionally with some stuff because well when you see stuff done by the other fabulous people out there like Ike, Mark, Croms, BlackDragon, etc you just can't help but want to join them!

Hugs for now!

  9. Too freaking cool. Beautiful colouring job and awesome concept. That blood spatter die is funky too. Fabulous job with taking a page out of Ike's book and superimposing the images to create some dimensionality.

    You are off to an ominous start and in the dark world that is a positive thing.
